All the things I have, Lord, while living in this place,
My treasure, tie and talents, my daily bread and heav’nly grace.

Blest beyond my dreaming, the life you’ve given me.

Oh, teach my heart to share, Lord, with those who are in need.

 

Treasures stored on earth will fade, rust and break apart.

With my treasures stored in heav’n, there I’ll find my heart.

Father, take my gifts now, and use them as you would.

Guide my hands to give them as I know I should.

 

Reaching out to others, helping change a life,

Giving back to you, Lord, knowing what is right.

Possessions without number, a life beyond compare,

A Father’s gift, a perfect Son, for a world in despair.

 

A Gift so freely given, of unimagined worth,

A Gift deserving praises from the people of God’s earth.

Treasures stored on earth will fade, rust and break apart.

With my treasures stored in heav’n, there I’ll find my heart.

There will I find, I’ll find my heart.
